    Another one -- I am liking the way this lens renders more than I thought I would. Little bit of a learning curve to it, it likes well-chosen focus points...

    Yup, it def fringes in high-contrast OOF areas at open apertures, but fortunately not too bad in in-focus areas. CA is not too bad even wide open.

    Got a 58mm f1.4 lens to play around with. I've been looking for a look lens and this one has had mixed reviews, seems folks either love it or hate it. I demoed one example several years back and was in the "meh" camp. It didn't seem particularly sharp wide open, and by the time you stopped it...

    Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S Photos and Discussions

    I will be interested in what both of you think of the 2x as I am somewhat conflicted about it. I have zero issues using the 1.4x -- to my eyes it is as good as the lens by itself in all areas. However with the 2x, I first see a tiny bit of IQ loss, arguably not enough to really matter for most...

    DxO scores are out for Z 7ii

    Well the mount is for certain capable. The existing S lenses are also so good at the corners, it has me wondering if 1) they will cover the 55mm IC of the FujiG/HassyX sized sensor -- I personally think they would, then 2) how good will performance be across that IC. OTOH, the current IQ is so...

    It's a great camera for sure.
